Reading at our School

Making Avid Readers

Our vision is to cultivate a lifelong love of reading amongst the pupils. We intend that our pupils will be both independent and reflective readers, who can read fluently and for meaning.  Reading in the curriculum has been planned to develop all our pupils into 'Good Readers', who are able to establish links with prior knowledge; extend learning by analysis and synthesis and finally evaluate and appreciate the author's intent.  

  • Children are encouraged to read a wide variety of genres;

  • Access to reading materials through a well-resourced library

  • Reading corners in classrooms give pupils access to  newspapers, magazines, fiction, non-fiction and poetry

  • Reading is an integral part in all areas of the curriculum

  • Weekly read aloud class story sessions across the school

  • Age appropriate bank of ‘Recommended Reads’ provided in school

  • Staff are avid readers, who share their love for reading with the pupils
